Data Centers

Building data centers in Iceland holds many financial, strategic and environmental advantages including, minimal or no cooling costs due to Iceland's year-round low ambient temperatures, inexpensive, reliable and abundant electricity derived entirely from renewable resources offers branding opportunities for green-energy. Four high-throughput fiber optic submarine cables connect Iceland with Europe and the USA.  A highly educated workforce and solid infrastructure with reliable power transmission make Iceland an ideal data center location.


For companies looking to outsource green data centers, Iceland is becoming a country of serious interest and Mannvit has the know-how and experience to assist in all facets of data center design and construction, including environmental, health and safety, structures, HVAC, cooling, telecommunications, power systems engineering and automation.
